Artistic Knives – Unusual Suspects

A Work of Art in Your Pocket

A good knife is an indispensable tool that is used for everything from busting open that package you just got delivered to getting you out of a tricky situation. Shown here in actual size are a range of knives, from one that was designed for close quarters combat to one that includes a retractable, glass breaker. Precisely machined, these pocket-works of art are almost too beautiful to be used…almost.
